I was once again hoping to find a local Ring Ouzel, without success but I nevertheless enjoyed a good walk in the sunshine. The usual species were seen on and around the Pool and the Cob Mute Swan was patrolling the water looking out for the Canada Geese! I heard my first of the year Willow Warbler by the railway emmbankment but could not locate it, great to hear all the same. A small flock of Greenfinch were good to see as they are thin on the ground in this area. The usual woodland birds were heard and seen and a Treecreeper gave great views as it scurried along a tree trunk a few feet away from me.
